Daily Show Turns Politicians Into Famous Cartoon Characters Foghorn Leghorn and Droopy Dog

So is Fred Thompson really Foghorn Leghorn and Joe Lieberman really Droopy Dog? The answer is yes, according to Jon Stewart at the Daily Show. Well, at least they have amazing similarities.

Whether you’re a Republican, a Democrat or an independent, you have to admit that there is a striking resemblance in both looks and voices.

From Animation Magazine:

There’s nothing novel about comparing American politics to a cartoon, but one late-night TV comedian got big laughs by pointing out that some of our leading politicians are becoming real-life versions of classic cartoon characters. The point was illuminated following Tuesday night’s broadcast of the Republican Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

During Wednesday night’s broadcast of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart noted the similarities between two Republican Convention speakers and a pair of iconic animated characters. Republican Senator Fred Thompson, with his puffed-up bravado and folksy Southern Drawl, was likened to boisterous Looney Tunes favorite Foghorn Leghorn, and jowly, slow-speaking former Al Gore running mate Joe Lieberman was compared to Tex Avery’s MGM creation, Droopy Dog.
